Bloor Homes - Bourton Chase, GL54
On the outskirts of Bourton-on-the-Water - a beautiful place where the peaceful rural lifestyle has remained intact, despite the excellent 21st century communication links nearby. Bourton Chase is in the heart of England's favourite landscape, the Cotswolds. The village is thriving and popular, with schools, shops and a host of local amenities well-used by residents of all ages, and surrounded by perfect countryside for walking and cycling, bustling market towns and sleepy little hamlets, unspoilt country pubs and charming tea shops.
The development at Bourton Chase has been carefully planned as a new community, with open green spaces, footpaths, cycleways and play areas. The homes are designed to reflect the much-loved local architecture and traditional construction, combined with the very latest in modern convenience and energy efficiency.
Reserve here in the early stage of construction, and you will be able to choose many of the details of how your new home will look, making it truly yours.
EDUCATION FOR ALL AGES
Families will appreciate the local schools, with Bourton-on-the-Water Primary School receiving a 'Good' report from Ofsted, while The Cotswold School is an 'Outstanding' secondary Academy. Both are within walking distance of Bourton Chase. The area is also well supplied with private schools, including Kitebrook House, Dormer House and Bloxham School, while there are several colleges in the Cheltenham area and, of course, Oxford.
EVERYTHING ALL AROUND YOU
The River Windrush, with its many streams and tributaries, winds through the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water, where several low arched stone bridges give it the name "Venice of the Cotswolds". Indeed, the historic village centre is beautifully preserved, with nearly all its 17th century buildings, in golden local stone, showing the distinctive Cotswold architecture.
The village has a Post Office, bank, bakery, convenience store and other local shops, as well as several fine old pubs. You'll also find a library and Youth Centre, and just out of town, a Tesco Superstore. The village has several doctors and dentists surgeries.
PUTTING THE 'UP' IN YOUR DOWNTIME
For the active life, this part of the world is perfect for cycling - with Bourton Cycles in the village stocking bikes for all levels - and horse riding, centred around Bourton Vale Equestrian Centre. There are also several excellent golf courses in the area. And don't forget a day at the races at the Cheltenham Festival!
